The Quest For A Morning Star | for the victims of 30.11

It’s been almost two weeks now, since the tragedy which killed and critically hospitalised many friends, clients, collaborators people I knew.At this moment… there are 50 dead people while many others are in hospitals in critical condition and sadly, that number of dead people is rising daily…so by the time you read this, some information may already be out of date.

I decided to help these people, as are all close to my heart, on all possible channels, so, because I received so much international support I decided to release this compilation, entitled “The Quest For A Morning Star”. All proceeds from the sales will be donated to help with medical bills and funeral expenses of those who have been affected by the fire.

I want to thank all the great musicians who have taken part in these soundtracks Rune Eriksen, David Tibet, Attila Csihar, Mirai Kawashima, Kimmo Helen, Adrei Ionut and Tudor Diaconescu – for their immediate response and support in making this compilation possible and available for fundraising. The love and support that’s out there in the international metal scene is unbelievable. I want to thank everybody who has helped out, from the bottom of my heart. As for the music, I started to create this music back in 2011, for a personal project, not directly related to metal music/artwork. When working on this type of project, I like to include the audible space as well as the visual in my work. So, all this music is extremely personal to me, and many of these soundtracks have never been released before. The spirituality of the works makes it feel quite natural for them to be released for a humanitarian purpose like this.

SHORT STORY OF EVENTS : On October 30, local band, Goodbye to Gravity were celebrating the release of their second album at the nightclub when the tragedy occurred. The fire has already claimed the lives of 50 victims, but that number is rising daily, with more than one hundred further people in hospital, many in critical conditions. In a tight knit rock/metal community the shockwaves have been massive; musicians, fans, photographers, engineers, security have all become victims of this terrible tragedy.
